Under the European Union (EU) funded “Strengthening Local Capacities for Resilience and Recovery’ project, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Toyota Libya F.Z.C. have launched a partnership to provide young Libyan people with three-month vocational training on car maintenance and repairing, computer skills, Reporting and English language. The partnership aims to help the country to cope with the rising unemployment rate among new graduates and promote decent jobs.
With UNDP and EU support, Toyota Libya will take on-board in the programme this year a new batch of 20 trainees, mainly Internal Displaced Persons (IDPs), to develop their skills and improve their chance to find a decent job. In the next years, more youth will benefit from this agreement, since the parties agreed on a long-term cooperation.
